There is an urgent need for the development of modern technologies to ensure food safety, security and nutrition, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) Vice-Chancellor Dr. K. Ramasamy said.

This is necessary considering the changing scenario in the field of agricultural marketing, Ramasamy said on Friday, while releasing a souvenir of the 10th national seminar on FoodXlore’17, organised by the students of B.Tech (Food Process Engineering) of Agricultural Engineering College and Research Institute in the University.
